For the second time in a week, Sen. Jeff Stone, R-Riverside County, is making headlines for his perfect score.
Sen. Jeff Stone, R-Riverside County announced Monday his voting record was 100 percent in alignment with the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers’ Association in the 2017 legislative session.
Senator Stone was one of only 10 legislators out of 120 to achieve such a high mark.
On Monday, Stone’s office released a statement to announce that he is one of 10 state senators to post a perfect 16-0 mark in the 2017 California Chamber of Commerce Vote Record of Major Bills.
Last week, Stone announced his voting record was 100 percent in alignment with the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers’ Association in the 2017 legislative session. Stone was one of only 10 legislators out of 120 to achieve such a high mark.
CalChamber released the results of their 43nd annual vote record on Nov. 3.
“When the people of the 28th District elected me, I promised to support California businesses and the hard working families that are the backbone of our state’s economy,” Stone said in the official release. “I applaud CalChamber, and other groups, that help shine a light on those in Sacramento who truly support the working men and women of California.”
This year, the CalChamber vote record covered 16 votes in the Senate and 15 votes in the Assembly. Most bills in the vote record cover major business issues that are of concern to both small and large companies.
CalChamber publishes its report in response to numerous requests by member firms and local chambers of commerce that requested a gauge by which to measure the performance of their legislators.
In his nearly three years in the State Senate, and before that for more than two decades as a Riverside County Supervisor and a Temecula City Councilman, Stone has never wavered in his support of the business community, according to the news release.
Stone represents California’s 28th Senate District. The district, which is entirely in Riverside County, stretches from the vineyards of the Temecula Valley to the Colorado River and includes the cities of Blythe, Canyon Lake, Cathedral City, Coachella, Desert Hot Springs, Indian Wells, Indio, Lake Elsinore, La Quinta, Murrieta, Temecula, Palm Desert, Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage and Wildomar.
